Wife gained immediate injunction and exclusion from family home

01 February 2011

We recently acted for a wife who was being harassed and intimidated by her ex-partner. When this began to occur in front of the parties’ child, the wife sought advice.

The husband discovered that the wife had sought legal advice and a further, more serious threat was made. We immediately assisted by making an application to the court for an injunction to prevent further harm or harassment and an Order for the husband to leave the family home and not return. The Orders were granted by a judge immediately and served on the husband. At the next hearing, the husband accepted the allegations and the wife remains protected by the Order made.
